Question What is my chance of getting an IM residency match

Hey peeps,

This is my credentials
223 / 244 / Pass CS / all 1st attempt/ yet to take Step3/ YOG 2012 / USCE - 1 month clinical elective / 2 US LoR / no publication

I'm currently applying for 2-month of clerkships at stateside in July and August before my graduation in Sept this year. My chief intention is to get as much US LoR as possible. I am also planning to take Step 3 after my graduation.

I will take part in ERAS for the coming season. I am curious what is my chances of getting into an IM residency program.

even if you do not get US-LOR you have a very high chance of matching. like 98% , the 2% is if you act weird in the IV

Where r u coming up randomly with a 98% chance number? You clearly don't know how competitive it is right now as 2000 amgs didn't match. Get to networking in hospitals.

It is so competitive now that scores are just 1 factor. LoRs and patient care /clinical experiences are so important now. You must be able to communicate to programs that you are comfortable working in hospitals in USA.
